Police State type security isn't something Governments can enforce in a free society

Last Friday Sydney’s Harbour Bridge was closed for a about an hour in the morning peak traffic time.

There are two general issues that were much of the discussion across Sydney that day that we should not ignore.

The first one, is the issue of whether the NSW Department of Community Services is serving the community, particularly families and children, in the best possible way.
On any view the answer is a NO.

DOCS have to improve, there can be no question about that.

Sure it is a difficult portfolio, but they must do better.

The other issue is security, public security on places like the Harbour Bridge.

Not long after September 11, 2001, ten years ago, these exact same security issues were raised about some of Sydney’s icons, and vulnerable infrastructure.

The NSW Government told us then that they would, and they did, undertake a security review.

Does anyone seriously think we can secure all places at all times?

Turn It Up.
